Apple and Google have been rolling out major updates to their Mobile OS every year (and more frequent for Google). how can RIMM and NOK/MSFT compete?

I don't know what it is to blame... Hierarchy? Change Management processes? it took almost a year for NOK to come out with Lumia 900 after the partnership with MSFT (FAIL) only even that flagship cannot be upgraded to WP8. RIMM is now marching down the same path as Palm's when it kept on postponing WebOS delivery... and it became almost irrelevant by the time it came to market despite all the nice features.

Time to turn out the lights... they have some cash, but their dated inventory will cost them a bundle to sell


http://www.vancouversun.com/business...855/story.html

TORONTO — While Research In Motion battles to convince investors it’s making the right moves, the company also faces perhaps a more difficult struggle to sell its millions of users on the idea of waiting until next year for new devices.

With seductive new smartphones running Google’s Android operating system coming out virtually every week and rumours of an updated iPhone this fall, even RIM’s most faithful users will have their loyalty tested.

“RIM is really between a rock and a hard place,” said technology analyst Carmi Levy on Friday.

“It’s trying to convince consumers that it remains relevant, but it doesn’t have anything relevant to offer them.”


That’s the challenge RIM will face after the surprise delay of its new BlackBerry operating system. The revelation late Thursday threw a wrench into what chief executive Thorsten Heins had been telling the public was a well-oiled machine working its way towards a product launch later this year.

With the announcement came a whole new wave of challenges for the Waterloo, Ont.-based technology firm, including how it’s going to persuade consumers into buying the aging slate of BlackBerry devices currently taking up space in warehouses.

“When you don’t come to market with a product for so long, consumers are eventually going to need to upgrade and will be looking for something else,” said Krista Napier, a senior mobility analyst at IDC Canada.

“And if you don’t have that upgraded product on the market you run the risk of them refreshing their product to something else.”

Napier said a study by IDC Canada found Canadian smartphone users tend to buy a new phone every 18 to 20 months. The latest delay from RIM will give competitors seven to nine months of that time to chip away at the BlackBerry’s customer base while RIM’s engineers toil in the workshop.

Competition has been one of the greatest setbacks for the BlackBerry device over the past few years.

A pioneer of mobile email affectionately referred to as the “CrackBerry” — the BlackBerry has fallen behind, particularly in the fast-moving North American consumer market where the hottest technology is often the biggest seller.

For this reason, RIM has turned to the emerging economies in South Asia, where being at the peak of technology isn’t necessarily top priority in an effort to help stay afloat for the rest of the year.

RIM has ramped up efforts in India to market its low-priced BlackBerry Curve model — locally known as the Jazz — while also selling the higher-end Bold to business customers.

“We believe these products and other programs can help to reinvigorate sales in these regions,” Heins told investors on a conference call Thursday.

“I expect that to help us in the next quarters.”

However, even on the global market, sales of BlackBerrys are stumbling, with first-quarter international sales off $1.1 billion over the previous quarter — and analysts generally don’t expect them to improve.

In North America, the company is pushing to maintain strong relationships with big businesses and government agencies, also known as its enterprise customers, in hopes they won’t defect to other devices before 2013.

The company also announced plans to chop away at its operations in an effort to create a leaner company. It will lay off a third of its workforce — or about 5,000 employees — as well as reduce the number of different BlackBerry devices on the market and outsource more of its non-core functions.

On Thursday RIM, which reports in U.S. dollars, posted a loss of US$518 million or 99 cents per share for its latest quarter, steeply missing analyst expectations. The results marked a decline from the profit of $695 million or $1.33 per share a year ago.

Heins told analysts that he expects the company will face further pressure on its financial results over the next several quarters.

At least one analyst questioned how RIM could successfully execute the release of its new phones amid mass layoffs.

“We think execution risks will continue,” Jefferies analyst Peter Misek said in a note to clients.

“We believe the BB10 pushout decision was recent and leaves RIM with inferior products in an increasingly competitive and saturated smartphone market.”

Rumours have circulated for months that a potential buyer could swoop in and pick up the company, and when nobody appeared to be interested, questions emerged over whether Heins would decide to put a chunk of RIM up for sale — most likely its struggling hardware division.

Heins has repeatedly said that selling the company is farthest from his mind, and so far the company’s board has stood by him.

However, investors are likely to grow more impatient with the drawn-out and uncertain future for the company.

“With increased global smartphone competition — and a very low probability the market will support RIM’s new BB10 mobile computing ecosystem — we believe RIM will ultimately need to sell the company or dramatically change its business model,” said Canaccord Genuity technology analyst Michael Walkley said in a note.

Shares of the company ended Friday down 20.3 per cent, or $1.92, to $7.54 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

So what if they use QNX in these cars? iDrive, COMMAND, and MMI aren't as good as they should be.

RIM still needs corporate clients to buy their **** and it doesn't look they are anymore

I don't understand why they're still trying to whore out the PlayBook. No one is buying them. It's the wrong size for a tablet, has sub-par app quality, and above all, is horribly outdated next to the competition.

Not a big fan of BB, but when a hardware is running on the most efficient, truly pre-emptive multitasking OS (QNX), you don't need a high powered, quad core mpu. "Outdated" single or dual core mpu is more than sufficient.

BlackBerry PlayBook Experience

The purpose of these hands-on events is to show you the full capabilities of the PlayBook and show you everything it has to offer. In this case, it meant tables of PlayBooks and Bold 9900's that visitors could try out and use and become more familiar with. RIM employees are on hand to answer questions, demonstrate each device's features and make sure the atmosphere was exciting and pleasant. Plus you have to love the PlayBook wall they had in the corner for people to purchase a 32GB or 64GB tablet.

This is a great time to interact with other BlackBerry fans, newbies, and those holding the demos. This is a great way for RIM to get their message out there and expose more people to their platform. Nothing shows off what the PlayBook can do than actually holding it in your hands and taking it for a spin. People from all ages lined up to listen to music, play games, and drink some beverages all while being serenaded with music from movie composer Paul Cantelon and his wife Angela McCluskey and listening to authors like Brittany Geragotelis and Sophie Flack.

The experience is open to the general public and each day they are holding giveaways with prizes that include the BlackBerry PlayBook, BlackBerry Music Gateway, 1-year PressReader subscription, SOUL and Sennheiser headphones and more. So if you're near Manhattan and want to stop by then be sure to do so during 11am - 7pm to have some fun. Catch the other scheduled events before it ends on July 23rd.

BlackBerry PlayBook Experience

One of the apps they tied into this event as part of the written word motif is Wattpad by WP Technology. Dubbed "YouTube for ebooks". Wattpad is a way for readers to discover new works, share their selections and connect with the authors and other users. This is a site for not just published authors, but for anyone to submit short stories, novels, or partial chapters for readers to comment on and enjoy.

Users can download stories to their PlayBook, search through various categories that include fan-fiction, post comments to the author, share what they're reading to Facebook and Twitter, and most importantly read original content from writers from all over the world. Wattpad is an ebook reader so you'll be able to browse and read all from within the app.

Do you own RIM stock?

Can't think of any other reason for someone to be spamming RIM news, when no one cares anymore

Maps are always up to date, text-to-speech is probably the best they have, routes using Google's traffic data, has multiple diff't route types, and to top it all off, it has an endless database for POIs, something Garmin can't match.

You can now cache maps into the storage so when cell signal is low, it will still work.

Hardly "crap"

Developer interest in BlackBerry OS at all time low

Things never seem to look up for Research In Motion these days. So perhaps it's no surprise that a new report from AllThingsD has found that RIM is "bleeding developers."

Citing a recent survey of 200 developers (from a sample set of 4,300) by Baird Equity Research, developer interest in working on BlackBerry OS versions 7 and 10 are at an all time low.

Baird researchers polled developer sentiment towards all major mobile platforms based on a 10-point scale with 10 marked as "excellent" and everything below that trailing down to "poor."

From the first to second quarters of 2012, interest in BlackBerry 10 slipped to 3.8 from 4.6 while positive sentiment towards BlackBerry 7 dropped a whole point to 2.8 from 3.8.

By comparison, iOS -- the leader of the bunch -- jumped from approximately 9.0 to 9.3. Android came in second during the same time frame, although it dropped ever-so-slightly to 8.7.

Windows Phone 8 and 7 were the only two mobile platforms that placed ahead of BlackBerry, which was trailed by webOS, Flash/AIR, and Bada, respectively.

Unfortunately for RIM, losing developers might just be the final nail in the coffin. The only chance the beleaguered mobile manufacturer has of saving itself at this point is producing something completely outside of the box at this point to get customers and investors excited again. Without developer interest in the BlackBerry platform, there's no chance of that happening.

Nevertheless, Baird researchers were quoted as saying that "many developers who planned to jump ship have already made the move, leaving a BlackBerry developer base that is smaller but increasingly loyal."

caching while going through a tunnel nothing. you want to be able to land in another country and use your phone to get to some place without roaming data. i have heard from some who do business trips that find themselves paying in the $100 of dollars in data because they were using google maps. and the lane assist is awful.

BlackBerry Case Study – Martha Stewart Living

We recently had a chance to catch up with Steve Rollins, Vice-President of IT at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc., who discussed with us the company’s experience implementing BlackBerry® Mobile Fusion. We’re clearly excited about the launch of this multi-platform Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, but it’s fantastic to see how it’s being used “on the ground” within organizations to help mobilize employees and bring tangible benefits.
One of the reasons the IT team at Martha Stewart Omnimedia insist on equipping the executives with BlackBerry MDM technology is the ability to snatch back data inadvertently delivered to the wrong person, at a moment's notice.

Biz Blog: Why was BlackBerry Mobile Fusion an important product for Martha Stewart Living to implement?
As a company with publishing, broadcast and merchandising divisions, we create a lot of mobile content for consumers across a variety of platforms. Our corporate-deployed devices have always been BlackBerry® smartphones, but in order to meet the needs of our staff (employees that have to be familiar with a range of devices and how they differ from one another), we have definitely evolved into a cross-platform company. With the introduction of BlackBerry Mobile Fusion, we can reduce the number of devices that people have to carry, expand the reach of the enterprise data to people who didn’t have access before and allow them to continue using the smartphone that best suits their particular work needs.

When we were initially looking at MDM software, BlackBerry Mobile Fusion was our number-one choice because it was simple to fit it into the infrastructure we had already built. That simplicity and the fact that we could secure other devices without assuming any significant cost were the biggest drivers.

BlackBerry Case Study – Martha Stewart Living

Biz Blog: How does BlackBerry Mobile Fusion help keep sensitive company information more secure?
As a publicly-traded company, we’ve always relied on BlackBerry smartphones and the security of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server to help protect our financial data and comply with certain rules and regulations. BlackBerry Mobile Fusion has given us the flexibility to protect all of the important non-financial information that we don’t want in the public domain, whether it’s trade secrets or next year’s designs and partners. That’s the sort of information that gives us an advantage in the marketplace and BlackBerry Mobile Fusion allows us to bring it back within the castle walls, so to speak. If someone happens to misplace their consumer device, it’s really important for us to have that ability to retrieve and protect that sort of data.

Biz Blog: What is another benefit that BlackBerry Mobile Fusion has offered your company?
When we were first looking into implementing BlackBerry Mobile Fusion, it was very important for us to be able to reduce the response time for employees to events that happen in the enterprise. It wasn’t fiscally responsible for us to give everyone a device of their choice, but being able to use BlackBerry Mobile Fusion allows us to put data on their existing smartphone or tablet securely and allow them to respond to our business needs more efficiently.
